Note necessarily.  You can also specify this in the <head> of your
html document like this:

<link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />

You should be able to do this by customizing your MoinMoin
theme.  Most browsers look for the "shortcut icon" rel, but
Safari uses just "icon", IIRC.  Use your favorite URL in the href.

The browser will only look in the site's root if it does *not* find
this info in the HTML doc itself.
